Equipo Kern Pharma is recruiting two more young talents from its feeder team, Equipo Lizarte, to bolster up its UCI ProTeam in 2022. The victor of the 2021 Copa de España, Pau Miquel, and the winner of the 2021 Vuelta a Zamora, Eugenio Sánchez, will step up to the pro ranks along with both Spanish National U23 champions, Igor Arrieta and Iván Cobo, whose signings were already announced in July.
“We’ve chosen to offer a pro contract to both Pau Miquel and Eugenio Sánchez in order to reflect our philosophy of talent development,” asserts Equipo Kern Pharma’s and Equipo Lizarte’s president, Manolo Azcona. “We are proud we are nurturing such high level riders in our feeder team – cyclists up to the task of being solid pros.”
“Pau Miquel has been the top Spanish U23 rider rider this season,” says Equipo Kern Pharma’s and Equipo Lizarte’s Team Manager and Sports Director, Juanjo Oroz. “He is a very good climber and a fast finisher, qualities that will enable him to land very interesting results as a pro. Eugenio Sánchez has proven time and again his commitment with our team values, being a devoted teammate, a reliable all-rounder and an excellent road captain. He is well capable of becoming an excellent domestique also in the top-tier of the sport.”
